Copper plating helps reduce lead fouling during barrel travel which increases the longevity of prime accuracy while lengthening the time between cleaning sessions. A relatively wide hollow cavity allows the bullet to expand upon impact with a game target so that it slows and delivers energy to vital areas rather than passing through and simple wounding the animal. That makes this ammunition ideal for putting rabbits in the stew pot or keeping crows away from the cornfield. An enlarged midsection helps the bullet to grab a greater section of rifling when fired, increasing spin stability and shrinking group sizes. This ammunition is rated to be subsonic out of a barrel that is six inches or shorter but will typically produce a supersonic crack when fired from rifles.
